Question about 2003 Lexus ES 300
I interpret your Q, to mean the Starter turns, but the Bendix drive does not engage, to crank the engine?
If so, check that the starter Solenoid Energizing connection, on the Starter Motor has not detached , or broken, or has become chafed on the body/engine, and is grounding out.
A simple test....Get a length of 14 gauge wire. Make a direct contact between the Starter Motor, Supply Terminal, and the Solenoid Energizer terminal.
If this Action does not rotate the engine, then you can be 99% sure the Starter Unit is junk.
If I am barking up the wrong tree, post me back.
